Vern Evans, who works out of Los Angeles, has been shooting for a long time and can make anybody look great, even a cranky artist and a cranky public radio host:

So I guess it's no surprise Evans managed to find something fresh at the most photographed event in the history of the known universe: this year's Comic-Con in San Diego.

Check out Vern Evans' complete photoset from SDCC 2015.

Evans was raised in Texas and, "spellbound with images taken by Arbus, Frank, Capa, Avedon, Lange and Cartier-Bresson," attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

When he's shooting, Evans says he asks the same thing of every subject: "Tell me your story," and the photo becomes "like a dream interpreted for its true meaning."
